Taylor Lautner may be teaming up with Adam Sandler in an upcoming movie. The Twilight star is currently in negotiations to join Sandler in Grown Ups 2.
Grown Ups 2 is a sequel to Columbia Pictures’ 2010 comedy hit that featured Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Kevin James, Salma Hayek and Maya Rudolph.
A rep for the 20-year-old actor mentioned that he would play a “fun” role that would see him go toe-to-toe with Sandler’s character.
The first Grown Ups was a buddy comedy film directed by Dennis Dugan. It was based on a group of childhood friends who reunited as adults after their high school basketball coach passed away. The film was produced by Sandler’s production company Happy Madison. The movie, which Sandler and Fred Wolf wrote, grossed $162 million domestically and $271 million worldwide.
Oliver Cooper, who is known for his lead in Project X, has also signed up to play a part on Grown Ups 2.
